I've found the reason for the freeze problems:
It was due to a buggy binutils_188.8.131.5210523-1.
The bug causing the complete freeze is fixed by the patch
with log message 'Properly warn relocation in readonly section in a
shared object' reported in Debian bugs 628770 (PR ld/12833) and 628916.
This is fixed in package binutils_184.108.40.20610606-1, and it is
confirmed that the emacs build no longer hangs when dumping emacs. (The
segfault problem remains). Maybe the other people having problems should
upgrade their binutils package.
BTW: I'm now using the dbg package and the kernel debugger gives the
following output after the hang:
Kernel page fault at address 0x10, eip = 0x106aa4
Kernel Page fault trap, eip 0x106aa4
kernel: Page fault (14), code=0
Stopped at 0x106aa4: cmpl 0x10(%eax),%ecx
